Roo protestors digging up the bodies

johnboy 4 June 2012 27

Territory and Municipal Services are extremely cross with animal rights activists who have been digging up the mass kangaroo graves from the recent cull:

The ACT Government has today condemned the actions of protestors who have dug up a kangaroo burial site in Kama Nature Reserve and removed carcases.

The pit has now been covered with extra soil and will not be used again.

“Our rangers today found that the pit site in Kama Nature Reserve near Coppins Crossing had been discovered by protestors who have illegally accessed the site. Protestors have dug through a metre of soil capping and removed and handled carcases, presumably with the intent of spreading misinformation about how our kangaroo cull is undertaken,” said Director, Parks and Conservation, Daniel Iglesias.

“While the ACT Government respects the rights of people to protest, this action is clearly insensitive and potentially dangerous.

Daniel Iglesias should at least be glad they’re limiting themselves to digging up the dead roos and not his family members.

Are the protestors against culling roos in general, or against shooting them. To me cruelty to them is either letting them starve to death, letting them get hit by cars, killing them another way other than shooting.

For all the anti-cull people just what is the real issue here? We’d all like to live in a world where this didn’t need to happen, but there are practical and real-world reasons it needs to be done.

I don’t like the cull, and find it hard to believe there is no other feasible method of controlling kangaroo numbers, but digging up corpses makes the protesters look macabre.

Ever heard of the director George Roomero?

Unfortunately there are only so many ways that a pest problem can be solved, it is unfortunate, but it is what has to happen.

Do you have another feasible and cost effective method?

lol Roomero!

Not all of them do. Only those who were completely and irrevocably bonkers in the first place.

Hence why they need a PR manager, to distance the moderates from the lunatics.

To all you jokers. This happens to be unrelated evidence of unwanted cruelty. TAMS comes out of this as spin doctors.

Not sure if it is the grammar or the actual message behind this, but I cannot make sense of that.

As opposed to all that ‘wanted’ cruelty?

Jeez, they really know how to kill off any sympathy to a cause.

I wonder if crappicker dug up her new favourite posterboy?

Yep, I’m thinking that we have a number one suspect for the case of the decapitated roo.

Protestors, beware of the curse of Rootankhamun!

As much as I am against the cull, this is pretty funny 🙂

Skip diving, surely.

I do like the term ‘kangaroo burial site’ though, sounds vaguely like the kangaroos conduct their own services there. Next door to the elephants’ graveyard.

LOL!

I do believe that it is an offence to interfere with a corpse.

We could always bury the protestors in the same spot?
